Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor both condemned Seahawks’ trick play call

·1 min read

There are few things more frustrating in sports than poor coaching decisions getting in the way of a win. Despite the lopsided final score, the Seattle Seahawks had their chances to make Sunday’s 20-point loss to the San Francisco 49ers a competitive game.

One of the most frustrating wasted opportunities came in the second quarter when Seattle had their most promising offensive drive going. After a pass from quarterback Geno Smith put them at San Francisco’s eight yard line, the Seahawks could have made it a one possession game with a touchdown. Rather than trust Smith to make another play, for some reason offensive coordinator Shane Waldron took the ball out of his hands and called on No. 4 running back DeeJay Dallas to pass. The inexplicable trick play ended in an interception.

That decision has been universally condemned, including by a couple of Seahawks legends: Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor.

Waldron has had a few strong games here and there but at best he’s been inconsistent when it comes to decision-making. Few teams have enough talent to overcome poor playcalling, and these Seahawks are definitely not one of them.
